Chien Y. Hung, MSW, MA-G, RYT, Program Director of VOYCE presents Residents’ Rights – What You Need to Know About Leaving a Nursing Home 

Residents’ rights are guaranteed by the federal 1987 Nursing Home Reform Law. The law covers skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, and residential care communities. It requires long-term care communities to “promote and protect the rights of each resident.” Additionally, the law emphasizes individual dignity and self-determination.

Being discharged from a nursing home can be stressful. The due processes that the facility must follow can be confusing. And ensuring that everyone keeps the resident’s rights in mind through the process can be challenging. As a long-term care resident family member, it’s important to know how you can protect your loved one throughout a nursing home eviction process.

Chien Y. Hung, MSW, MAG, R-YT, Program Director of VOYCE, presented this session to explain these important issues and to answer questions on residents’ rights, the legal issues of leaving a facility. Additionally, you’ll learn what you can do to support a loved one who might be thinking about entering or leaving a facility.
